Alex Nauman

At the crossroads of traditional jazz guitar, funk, and experimental improvising music stands a rising star shining brighter every day. Alex Nauman. Once this young guitarist, composer, arranger, songwriter, and educator starts putting those talents to work everyone begins to take notice.

People have been taking notice for quite some time now. Alex has been been a regular player throughout the Rocky Mountain Gig circuit. He's been an integral member of a long list of eclectic groups even before he could drive himself to gigs. Playing everything from straight-ahead Jazz, Bop, Funk, R&B, Soul, Hip-Hop, Big-Band Swing, Acoustic Bluegrass, and even a little country, its easy to see why Alex is considered one of the most talented & versatile Musicians around.

”Alex is one of the best emerging young jazz guitarists I've heard in a long time. He has one foot firmly planted in the styles of past masters like Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass, and the other foot is stepping out toward new, exciting ground. He plays with the passion of someone truly devoted to his music, and that passion is contageous. Keep an eye on this guy - he's on fire!”

- Jeff Troxel, national flatpicking champion, international performer, Mel Bay author

”Alex Nauman is an incredible young guitarist. He has the skills and the “jazz savvy” of players two or three times his age.”

- Kelly Roberti, montana composer, educator, bassist, international performing artist
